“Upon closer inspection of some of your past experiences or a present situation, you may find that the reality of the situation may be different from your perception of it. Your perception may simply be the result of how you have negatively processed past experiences.  You know, you may feel as though something went wrong in the past therefore it’s going to go wrong in the future. You were judged before, therefore you’re going to be judged now. Things didn’t go right in the past, so things won’t go right now. So what if you did that before? I’m not here to judge you and you’re not here to judge yourself.

Quite the contrary, you are being smart in ridding yourself of ANYTHING that stands in the way of enhanced happiness. Capture more tools to empower yourself now. Explain how a negative processing sequence can have damaging results and rid yourself of that waste of time. Listen, have no worries. What is important is TODAY, what is important is NOW. Create a fresh new perspective with an open minded approach to evaluation, take action, and have positive reinforcement and you’ll have all that you desire. Armed with your soul machine now and proper gear, you will see almost INSTANT productive movement and achieve heightened happiness almost immediately.”

Processing Criticism Beneficially Part 2

LISTEN HERE:

“Thus, through no one’s fault, you were not provided with a road map for productive processing of your emotions. Without positive conditioning and encouragement or imparting of wisdom in how to process or cope with your feelings there’s almost no way that your machine would not regurgitate those negative experiences.

As a result, what happens? You remember more about what you did not do, what people said you did not do than remembering what you have accomplished. This is a natural feeling. Perhaps you doubted the existence or power of your soul machine because of a past painful experience. You say you don’t want to remain in that state of feeling, but you assumed you were powerless to take steps to make the right and positive move. Because you are not functioning properly or your processing wasn’t working in the way you want, you didn’t really FEEL like you could move.

You instead REPRESSED those feelings or stored them in a negative environment. The actual storage of these negative experiences acts like a clouding of the glass in a window. It layers the window of best action with layers of crud like film. As a result you sometimes unknowingly cannot see the best routes for most effective decision making. It essentially clouds or jades the way you think. It changes the way you make decisions. You don’t see things as clearly.

The process of clouding is rarely immediate. It almost always works in a more subtle way. In a way that you don’t always see the significance of the clouding until you honestly inspect yourself. Or you feel inexplicably compelled to move or remain in an illogical situation. You can see how powerful your perception of things can be.

How we think determines what we do. Therefore how you think will determine what you do. Your perspective impacts the kinds of information you will process and the way you will process it. Therefore you can immediately create happiness by simply adjusting your perspective. I use the word simply because when you see how your processing is working to date and to the extent to which it is creating artificial barriers to joy, you will agree that you will simply need to eliminate those thinking patterns. And the path will become quite clear and very easy to navigate.

Really recognizing your accomplishments

LISTEN HERE:

The foundation of any success is built upon honest recognition of your goodness and your capabilities. Start with a real recognition of your accomplishments. Take time to specifically identify what you have accomplished during your lifetime. And understand that when I talk about the word accomplishments, they also mean the steps you have utilized to complete to get to a goal—the steps along the way. There is no rating system that says you don’t include whatever you consider to be small accomplishments. You know, too many people focus on the end goal and don’t realize how many things you’ve done along the way to reach the ultimate goal. This important step of identification of your greatness deserves acknowledgement. For example, you may have eventually left a job and thought you were unhappy about it or that somehow you didn’t succeed, but I guarantee you that you can identify what you DID do—what you DID contribute during that job—and what you learned. A relationship may have ended, and you think it was all bad or it was your fault or their fault, but I assure you, you can identify some great things that you enjoyed and contributions which you made and things that you learned which will be helpful in the future. Additionally, there are always accomplishments in the education you gathered about yourself and your tendencies whether you choose to admit it or not. In other words, you learn about what you TEND to do, how you TEND to decide in a certain way, what motivates you to do certain things. I will go even further and tell you that an accomplishment can be derived from what you thought was a failure. I can tell you the word FAILURE is not in MY dictionary, it shouldn’t be in yours either! Thus, you should include personal and professional accomplishments in order to recognize your goodness. Now we’re focusing on all accomplishments. List them ALL. It may take time. But I guarantee you that there will be reward in actually writing down and seeing your list of accomplishments. Be honest with yourself. Give due recognition to every achievement. This is about what you HAVE done and the significant good in you. I want you to identify ALL that you have achieved and ALL that you are.
